    Jorge, Classic 400 is a fantastic film, the fact that it is cheaper just screams "BARGAIN"! At those prices for Rollei sheet film, I would entertain purchasing some put options or selling some call options on that segment of Rollei's business. I await instead the possibility of John and Efke coming up with Efke PL200 and PL400 at prices that truly reflect current market conditions for sheet film.

    Jorge,
    stop squawking. TMY will probably cost the same as the Rollei film within a year!

    Well, now I know which films to compare it with - I was going to use Tech Pan and TMZ.

    Best,

    Hi,

    I can hardly believe that this R3 film is something different than the Cube film MACO already sells, they are too much alike.

    What would be the rationale to produce such similar films? Why hurt sales on Cube thru this new R3 film?

    If they are not the same: producing two emulsions so alike just add costs (machine setup, handling, lower sales) to each of them

    It sounds too much as a marketing thing: put Rollei on it, make it a bit more expensive, give it some mystical spec's and let the brandname do the work for you. Cudo's for the marketeers when they pull this one off :-)

    Maybe Maco rebrands/team's up with Rollei if they can get a better price for their products under the rollei brand?

    from what I understand it appears you are correct and it is the Maco Cube film rebranded. At least Maco is being smart and selling rebranded film more expensive than their own brand, unlike Ilford.....
